Nice to hear this post discussed at #43 :). Would be fun to hear you on that show !

@Kirith:
"The item loss makes combat feel very visceral as you fear for the loss of your stuff and thrill in the pain your opponent feels when you cause him to lose his stuff."

Beautifully sums up why I'll never play the game.

1. I get no additional thrill from the "fear of losing [my] stuff" - I know this because I used to play MUDs where losing items was both possible and likely.... both thru PvP and PvE.

2. I get no additional thrill from inflicting loss on others. I guess my sadistic streak isn't where it needs to be. =)

@Beowulf:

"I have been a bit frustrated about the anti-EvE bias in the liberal gaming media."

Most hilarious comment ever! Reminds me of politicians whining when their parties aren't looked at in 100% good light by a portion of the media. :P

You speak of me as though I am Richard Bartle, heh.

You should take Darren to task! He's been in 0.0 space. He isn't an empire mining and mission monkey like me.

2009-02-11T15:12:00.000-05:00

I've always said that the reason I love the fact the game is full of scammers and the like, is that it means the devs don't attempt to protect me from myself. That is something worth it's weight in gold. My success or failure hinges on my choices, not the restrictions put in place by the Devs.

Of course, it's not quite that black and white, but EVE comes closer to the ideal than anything else on the market...



Great article Kirith! Keep them coming.

Kirith I see that you aren't saying but I am. I have been a bit frustrated about the anti-EvE bias in the liberal gaming media. Sometimes I think these MMO podcasts should just call themselves fantasy MMO podcasts. I'll put out a blog on it soon. Thanks for the great article!

Whoa, I never said Eve was best. :) I simply pointed out why I feel the players in the game play the game.

2009-02-11T10:30:00.000-05:00

Best game in the world, period. Those guys need to STFU and GTFO IMHO... lolz.

I hate people who talk like me.

You illustrated why EVE is the best quite well. Perhaps we can conjure up a response from the podcast community.

On a similar note, I think now that EVE is going retail, it would be a great time for the "professional" game journalism community to give it another look.

2009-02-11T09:41:00.000-05:00

Very well stated, Kirith. You aptly describe the reasons New Eden is so compelling. As for risk, players can substantially minimize their exposure by taking the time to educate themselves thoroughly about whatever it is they are planning to do in-game--before they do it. Which raises another point: Does any other game inspire the quantity and quality of resources that EVE does?

Well said, well said indeed. Also, happy birthday.

2009-02-11T09:11:00.000-05:00

To be clear, I'm not criticizing the coverage SUWT podcasters have done of Eve. I'm just trying to provide a "hardcore" Eve player's point of view that is missing from the last two episodes guests. I don't feel they spoke ill of Eve, but just didn't have the chance for someone to present the "other side" so to speak. :)

2009-02-11T09:07:00.000-05:00

The current run of events in 2009 has certainly had some widespread coverage. PC Gamer Podcast USA and Giant Bombcast have all had talk about the recent thefts/assassinations/closures but to be honest their discussion, whilst not based on any real knowledge of the game, was very positive - certainly from the Bombcast, they love that the game exists, even if they don't play it.

I heartily agree with your statements and speaking ill of EVE and "why we put up with it" is a bit lazy, taking the game completely out of context.

Go Go Kirith!
